When I ordered these earrings after having read the reviews, and after having lived with my family for many years in Chile, I knew I was going to like them, but when I unwrapped them from their nest of tissue paper, my heart grew a size bigger. They are as they say in Chile, "Tierna'. Tierna means heartbreakingly lovely, and these little earrings ( just the right size) are as poetic and tierna as the Chilean people themselves. In the parlance of some , they are '"anointed". Make no hesitation to buy not one, but several, because you will be proud to give them as gifts. I will try my best not to ever lose them. They will make your eyes light up , I promise you.
